Thomas Malthus may be pesemistic in some peoples eyes. However, his theory should be considered especialy for the U.S.A. Speaking as an American, I think our government is starting to lead us down the unlikely path of world peace. While I have thought this a worthy goal in the past, this theory brings about ideas never heard of in todays society. Malthus makes you consider the posible results of this path before stumbling into it head first. I think this book has a well deserved place in the present society's library.
